This deceptively simple container, made from sleek, black patinated bronze and lined with soft, contrasting brass, works as either a floor or tabletop vase. The pair of richly textured cast metal dragons that stare defiantly from either side serve simultaneously as decorative elements and as convenient handles. The dragon here is not merely aesthetic, but symbolic, signifying supernatural power, wisdom, strength, hidden knowledge, courage, and, last but not least, good luck.
